Sony Xperia 1 Hands-on Experience: 1 Inch Long And 1 Inch Strong This Is What It Should Look Like


[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel] Writing position: When I wrote the Xperia XZ2, I predicted that this new design would be difficult for Sony fans to accept quickly; I expected to change Sony fans’ feelings during the XZ3 period, but I was wrong….. Sony Xperia 1 Some people say that Sony Xperia XZ Premium is the product that Sony cell phone face play, but when I was excited to unpack the delivery box, unpack the phone, and see Sony Xperia 1, I want to tell you that the most beautiful son of Sony cell phone is in my hands. Appearance Sorry, let me be a little subjective this time, my Sony Xperia 1 is fog gray, did not choose the re

The matte gray color scheme is closer to a metallic feel, especially in reflections, yes, reflections, that’s Sony’s feel. The feeling of holding it in your hand is not brought about by the 21:9 length, which is not easy to grip, the 72mm width keeps the narrow body as before, my hand is not big but can be operated with one hand on Sony Xperia 1. The highly polished finish creates an excellent chemistry between the middle frame and the back panel, resulting in a more visually and tactilely unified look and feel.

The fingerprint recognition on the side is flat and long, with a highlighted finish as if to say, “Look, it’s a feeling of habit, right?” As always, the volume keys, power-on button, physical photo button, and fingerprint recognition are all on the right side. At the bottom, in order, is the microphone, Type-C charging port, and speaker, well, not on the same level.

Appearance Summary: The appearance design is certainly difficult to adjust to the crowd, there is no absolute high value, but based on market feedback, once handed Sony Xperia XZ Premium, many people switched to Xperia 1, which is gratifying for Sony Mobile. Screen As the 18:9 ratio gradually faded from the stage, there are more and more phones with such ratios as 19.5:9 and 20:9.

Users can enable “Master Mode” or the default “Standard Mode” in the system’s “Image Quality Settings.” The Master Mode provided by CineAlta maximizes the creator’s visual experience, whereas the Standard Mode expands the original color gamut for more brilliant colors and improves the image’s brightness and contrast. 21:9 provides a more enjoyable visual experience. When watching 4K HDR sources, the Sony Xperia 1 brings the viewing experience from the Sony TV into the phone due to the addition of X1 for Mobile’s picture engine technology, which makes it possible to play When playing HDR videos, the dark details are better reproduced and the exposure is well suppressed, bringing an overall colossal visual sense. The dual speakers and Dolby Atmos panoramic sound provide more three-dimensional realism when playing videos and music, and the 21:9 ratio screen provides a more complete user experience.

As a way to improve ease of use, Android has long supported split-screen mode, which opens and runs two software applications up and down at the same time. However, on phones with 16:9 and 18:9 ratios, for example, after opening two software up and down, basically one software can only show a few lines, let alone chatting and watching videos at the same time. However, on the Sony Xperia 1, opening the multi-window split screen brings a whole new experience.

To begin with, while watching a video, I can open WeChat again to chat, and the pop-up input method when typing does not affect the video screen displayed in 16:9 above, providing an unprecedented experience.

Summary of the Screen: When you look at the screen of the Xperia 1, you know it’s top-notch. Its strengths are its fine text display and color management, but its brightness performance is average for this screen. I can score 8.5 out of 10.

Photo shooting Sony micro single technology has been very mature, so why has Sony cell phone photography not been much improved? This time, Sony’s imaging team finally made an effort to optimize the photo effect for Sony Xperia 1, and even brought BIONZ X (Sony camera image chip) technology to this phone. Through three different focal lengths of 16mm, 26mm, and 52mm suitable for more shooting scenes, Sony Xperia 1 now has a human eye focus function, which is the focus technology downloaded from A7M3 and A7RM3 to Xperia 1. It is more sensitive to capture focus in shooting people in motion, suitable for capturing, but still face focus when shooting video, by tracking and focusing on the human eye.

This time, Sony brings new things to people who like to shoot video, in the field of film there is a “CineAlta” certification, you can understand the video world “small gold standard”, Sony Xperia 1 support “CineAlta” certification, I certified myself okay? The product of “CineAlta” certification is the “Movie Master” that comes with the phone. Because there is an independent shutter button, so the feeling of taking pictures is still quite card machine, but there are still quite a lot of small bugs in taking pictures, such as the imaging speed is sometimes slow, the focus frame can not focus, but after taking pictures of the focus of….. These issues should not be caused by hardware; therefore, it is recommended to update via OTA as soon as possible.

I also took the Sony Xperia 1 for a stroll down Shanghai Nanjing East Road and took some photos as I went. In terms of imaging effect, this time Sony Xperia 1 relative to Sony Xperia XZ3 imaging effect is simply a leap, first of all, the photo sharpening degree is higher, detail processing is also very balanced, shooting dark photos, noise control and highlight suppression performance is good, but in the two secondary camera but easy to overexposure, and the overall photo is still some brightness is low, this previous generation

Photo Summary: Compared to previous generations of Sony Xperia, the improvement of Sony Xperia 1’s photos this time is very noticeable; this is what I felt after taking the first photo with my hand, and I believe you should be able to understand my feelings if you own an Xperia 1. However, there are still minor issues, which I hope will be resolved soon. Performance configuration Sony’s flagship phone will undoubtedly choose the mainstream flagship configuration, in the processor equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, and equipped with 6GB 128GB storage combination, daily software use without lagging situation, near-native system will not be negative optimization lead to system lag.

According to some users, the cause of this situation could be an optimization issue. The Sony Xperia 1 did not receive the firmware to fix the bug before the deadline.

However, the Sony Xperia 1 is still a cool feeling to use, and the Google Framework support also allows many Sony fans to not have to brush the Hong Kong version of the firmware to get Google Play. Sony Xperia 1 is very light, only 180g, which is not only related to the design of Sony Xperia 1 materials, but also because the battery capacity is only 3300 mAh, to be honest, this battery capacity is really too small in mid to late 2019, but Sony

Summary: Did Sony’s Xperia XZ2 and XZ3 fail? Obviously, it failed in terms of market feedback. However, the Sony Xperia 1, which combines Sony’s technological capabilities, finally broke the deadlock and entered the market as a “ONE SONY” product. Although I do not yet know the sales of Sony Xperia 1, the market feedback is clear, and I also point out in the article the problems encountered, some of which even affect daily use, but the good news is that Sony’s software repair ability is still relatively strong, so I hope Sony Mobile can speed up the speed of repair, and do not let the people who love you down.
